Hash: SHA1

GNOME 2.26.2 released!

,----[ Quote ]
| This is the second update to GNOME 2.26. It contains many fixes for important 
| bugs that directly affect our users, documentation updates and also a large 
| number of updated translations. Many thanks to all the contributors who 
| worked hard on delivering those changes in time. We hope it will help people 
| feel better in their daily use of computers!    


The Future Of Gnome DE Looks Promising

,----[ Quote ]
| One thing we have learned from KDE4 is that its not a good idea to make 
| drastic change to a desktop environment that the users have been used to for 
| a long time. Hopefully the Gnome developers will keep that in mind as they 
| work on Gnome 3.0 release for next year. Gnome is known for making subtle 
| incremental changes instead of doing major overhaul, but the changes they 
| have planned for Gnome 3 is much bigger than we have come to expect from 
| Gnome.      


Gnome 3.0 General Sociological Research

,----[ Quote ]
| First of all we would like to thank the 1000+ people that took the survey in 
| the margin of one week and thus contributed for a better gnome. I (Anton) 
| would like to thanks the others from Gnome Usability team too about their 
| response and advices regarding the questions asked. I have tried to present 
| the results as better as possible by using Open Source tools and the online 
| services of Google Docs. You can view a summary for each question as well as 
| some thoughts at the end of the Summary Data Chapter.      



9 Great Gnome Themes with Ubuntu Repositories

,----[ Quote ]
| François Vogelweith is the author of zgegblog, a site that maintains a
| collection of great GNOME themes (you can see screenshots of the themes and
| some more info but in French, on his website). Balanzan (translated: Balance)
| is one of its most popular creations, a very comprehensive theme based on
| Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope, which contains a wallpaper, logon theme, Emerald
| theme, controls and icons.


A Few Of The Changes For GNOME 2.27.1

,----[ Quote ]
| The first development release of GNOME 2.28 was supposed to be out at the end
| of April per its release schedule, but it's now slowly coming together. There
| are many bug-fixes and translation updates in the packages checked in so far
| for this first GNOME 2.28 development release (a.k.a. GNOME 2.27.1), but
| there are a few items worth pointing out.


Next GNOME Foundation Elections

,----[ Quote ]
| As people probably remember, the current GNOME Foundation Board was elected
| to serve until June 30th, 2009. We changed the end date from December 31th to
| June 30th so that the new board could have a face-to-face meeting at the very
| beginning of its term, during GUADEC. This face-to-face meeting is most
| useful to energize the board and make things go faster, so it really makes
| sense to have it occur at the beginning of a board term.


GNOME 2.26: Fast & Stable, But Light On The New Features

,----[ Quote ]
| As I’ve used GNOME 2.26, I tried hard to find new things to make the overall
| release notable, but unfortunately I couldn’t really find anything exciting.
| Don’t get me wrong, GNOME is not a horrible desktop by any means; it’s fast,
| stable and gets the job done. However, this new release likely will not do
| much to convince users of other desktop environments to make the switch.


Changes to the GNOME System Administration Team

,----[ Quote ]
| We'd like to announce a formal system administration team. GNOME has long had
| an informal sysadmin team that has managed the gnome.org services. Putting
| this team on a more formal basis similar to the GNOME Release Team will allow
| us to involve and recognize contributors more effectively, and better
| coordinate with other parts of the GNOME project.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
